From a very young age, he used to perform in plays at his school functions. He first performed an act when he was in the third standard. Naveen was assured to become an actor by the time of his high-school. But as his father told him to first complete his studies before doing any kind of experiments with his life, Naveen cleared the exam for NIT, Bhopal.
He chooses Mechanical Engineering as a subject-course, but after completing 1st year in Mechanical Engineering he slides into Civil Engineering. Thereafter, he started a theatre-cum-club along with his friends, where they used to perform acts and plays. After lacking numbers of the audiences in the theatre, the group started a Band. A Band of Boys. No! Not that one. So the Band started performing English songs. Unfortunately, in the college, the numbers of English song-lovers are even less than that of art-lovers, so they switched the lyrics into Hindi.
Soon after completing his graduation, Naveen got a job. Within a month, he was posted in London, where he worked for a Telecom company. Later, he quit the job for his real passion i.e acting and moved back to Mumbai. And the interesting part is that Naveen lied to his parents, that he was on vacation and will be back to his work. So he started attending various acting classes and plays and from there the struggle of actor Polishetty started.
